We stayed at Mfuwe Lodge during what they call the "rainy season" - usually a quieter time of year. Well, there may have been less guests around (hurrah!) but there was certainly no shortage of animals to be seen (double hurrah!).
My husband had just bought a new camera and it was perfect weather for clean, crisp photography. The birds are in their breeding plummages - just stunning colours.
We had our 3 children with us and of course, they love seeing all the babies that are around at this time too.
The highlight was of course seeing the fabulous wild dogs. 2 days running our guide, Peter, managed to find them for us.
Guiding - Peter was just brilliant with our kids. He managed to keep everyone in the group very happy.
The food was delicious and we had a huge variety of different meals - all very well thought out.
Snacks and drinks on the drive were provided and we never had to think about anything - all very relaxing.
This lodge is inside the South Luangwa National Park, so on the one drive where one of our children had had enough, we simply took him back to the lodge and the rest of the group carried on with the game drive - all very convenient.
A huge thank you to everyone to giving us another great stay at Mfuwe Lodge!
